We are being asked to step up
I talk about the fear I have been feeling around coronavirus and ways to reframe that fear and come to see it as an invitation to step up, to rise. Our grandmothers and great grandmothers were asked to step up and hold space for their families their husbands and sons went off to war. We are being asked to step up by sitting our arses on the couch and not stockpile loo rolls! Oooo the guilt that comes alongside the realisations when you start having these thoughts. I talked about how one of my biggest fears is actually having the kids at home for months on end and how I will cope with that. I share suggestions of ways to support yourself and reach out. My colleague Amy has set up this pop-up four week online community/course during this topsy-turvy period. If you are feeling overwhelmed and are looking for a way to both calm yourself and come together at this time then check it out. She has four amazing speakers coming in including Kate Northrup. https://www.amytaylorkabbaz.com/returninghome --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/moremojoformums/message

You are the reason I left my kids for 3.5 days
Yes you. You dipping into podcasts looking for…......... What are you looking for? The answer? A distraction? Connection? When it comes down to it we are all just looking for, no scrap that, desperately longing for connection. Connection with ourselves, our partners, our purpose. When we don’t have connection we are lost, stunted, diminished. When we have it we are in powered inspired uplifted. I made a conscious decision to leave my much longed for children for you. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/moremojoformums/message

How do you access your happy place?
That feeling when you are calm, content, connected. How do you get there? How often do you consciously decide that is where you want to go.

How to make your fitness and wellbeing a priority (and why you should)
Introducing Heather of ‘Health and Fitness for Mums’ this month’s guest on the More Mojo podcast. As mums we can easily find ourselves putting everyone else's needs before our own but Heather is here to help us change that. I asked Heather what the number one thing is that she would like to share it with other mums. Her answer “Essentially how to look after themselves better - doing more exercise, eating healthier all that stuff - it doesn't start with squats and kale, it starts with making space. It starts with letting go of all the superfluous things in their lives that aren't serving them. Learning to say no to societal pressure to have it all, and yes to their own intuition that knows that the true path to happiness is through a stronger relationship with themselves, their family and their community!” Yes ladies this is a good one. In this podcast we talk about mum guilt and what to do about it, why looking after your own health goes waaaay beyond being a better mum, how to get on board with the do less movement and so much more. You are invited to join Heathet’s free fb community, Heather’s Health Hub, a refuge from the pressure of modern mum life and a place to share ideas, inspiration with like minded mums who want to slow down, re-think their priorities and enjoy life more. Plus you'll find simple home workouts and lifestyle tips to keep your energy up when times get tough. www.facebook.com/groups/249042195884836 http://www.heatherkeats.co.uk Instagram https://instagram.com/heatherkeatsfitnessformums?igshid=xu19gjycr09m https://www.facebook.com/heatherkeatshealthandfitness/ If you'd like to find out more about Heather's online or in person fitness and wellness coaching, just send her a message to book a free call. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/moremojoformums/message

How to supercharge your sleep in just 15 minutes
As mums our biggest struggle is often sheer exhaustion. We all know that lack of sleep is hugely detrimental, not just to our health but to our quality of life. Not getting enough sleep can impact our metabolism and hormones which then has a knock-on effect to our moods, weight gain, memory and can lead to serious health issues. We know this yet, especially if you have young children, sleep can feel like a luxury rather than a necessity. Even once they do finally settle we may find ourselves staying up late as we are craving some much-needed alone time or find it different to settle ourselves as we prepare for the nightshift and regular wakings. So what if I told you that in just 15 minutes you can achieve the equivalent of a full hours deep sleep? Interested? I know I was when I first heard about this technique. View blog version of this podcast https://www.moremojoformums.co.uk/blog for references. I am so passionate about this technique that I am including an entire chapter on it in the More Mojo for Mums book and I have written and recorded a 15 minute Yoga Nidra practise for you which is now available here https://www.moremojoformums.co.uk/store Join More Mojo For Mums for free here https://www.moremojoformums.co.uk/signupformoremojo --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/moremojoformums/message

Worst mum ever!
This week I talk about how nothing external to ourselves can influence how we feel. Not our circumstances, not what others say or do to us. The only thing that can influence our feelings is our thoughts about what is happening. This is why you can imagine you will feel a certain way and then when the time comes feel completely different in that moment. This is why two people can experience exactly the same scenario and feel completely different about it. I also talk about the whole host of thoughts and emotions I went through when I realised that I had not ordered Jasper’s school uniform in time for the start of term! Worst mum ever! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/moremojoformums/message

What shitty beliefs are fucking up your life?
Short podcast following the 15 minute video I did in the More Mojo For Mums chat group on Facebook at the weekend. In the video I talk about the beliefs I had around being with my kids and hubby full on for an 11 day trip away. In this podcast I explain what a negative belief is and how it can impact the decisions we make and therefore the way we interact with our children and our partners. I talk about some of the other shitty beliefs I had around being a mum and how I’ve turned them around into more beneficial ones.

Why setting intentions is so helpful
We had a family weekend away in London and before leaving I set myself the following intentions and shared on Instagram and Facebook for accountability. This podcast is a brief look at how setting these intentions shaped my weekend. My intention for this weekend is to connect deeply with each member of my family on our trip to London. I intend to listen intently to my body and take the time to stop and top myself up whenever I am feeling anything less than happy. I give myself permission to take time away from my family as then the time spent together will be a lot more enjoyable. I intend to walk on Hampstead heath early on Sunday morning and if I’m feeling adventurous swim in the ladies pond. I intend to really listen to Luke and chat rather than spending ages on my phone. I intend to get down on Evie’s level and make eye contact with her and talk to her when she is overcome by big emotions. I intend to see things from Jasper’s point of view and encourage him rather than push him into new experiences. I intend to journal each day and know that the kids seeing me write is part of how I want them to know me. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/moremojoformums/message

Me at 80!
I just shared a photograph on Instagram of what I might look like when I’m 80. I deliberately chose that photo as I imagine that I will still be wearing pink fluffy ear muffs and vibrant scarfs even in my later years. Instead of freaking myself out with the fact that time is ticking by I actually love this photograph. I look really like my Gran who I think is one of the most beautiful women in the world. It’s got me thinking about how my children and grandchildren will feel about me. The actions and choices we make every day layer up to become the essence of who we are. What we look like has absolutely no bearing on how the people we love see us. Are you living each day as you want to be remembered? I’ve also added mad me at 90 and me at 60 go check them out and share you own in the More Mojo for Mums chat group on Facebook. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/moremojoformums/message
